another thread revival!
Finished mine. I basically did everything myself. Sketched my logos and sent them to a decal guy who did a good job with them, I think. Made my scorers out of toy car hobby wheels and thread spools.
Regarding mounting the board and leveling/climatic adjustments...
My table is about 10' with a 9' playing surface. I used (6) hangar bolts that screw into the cradle and (literally) BITE into the underside of the maple- it DOES NOT MOVE. I can easily adjust the bolts by screwing/unscrewing the bolts from below the board's surface (mine is about 2" raised off the cradle bottom).
For climatic adjusters, I made my own. Got four lenghts of rectangular/tubular steel just short of the width of the table. Drilled three holes to accept some 2" bolts: one a 1/2" from either end, one dead middle. Adjusters went a foot from either end and then about 2 1/2 towards the center from there.
I sunk 3 threaded bolt receivers into the underside of playing surface to receive said bolts for the four adjusters. Then, I added the bolts and nuts- a nut on underside and top of the tubular steel. Onward, making sure I started all 3 nuts even, top and bottom, I made adjustments by tightening either the bottom or top nut of the MIDDLE bolt.
Tightening the top nut "pushes the center up, as the screw doesn't rotate and the tubular steel wants to flex back or UP. Tightening the bottom screw draws the middle of the board DOWN, as the nut is drawing up, while the screw is stationary, thus, drawing the board DOWN when the steel length wants to flex back down to its natural state.
Wanted to explain that for people as adjusters are hundreds of dollars and one can easily do this themselves. It took a bit of thought but it works.
